Florida Republican Congressman Byron Donalds joins Fox Across America With Jimmy Failla to explain why the Democrats’ objection to the Supreme Court potentially overturning Roe V. Wade is rooted in their party’s belief that the federal government should have more power than individual states.
“What the Supreme Court did in ’73 actually ended the political debate on abortion in the United States. Even Ruth Bader Ginsburg said that. And if you want to look at the actual ruling itself, it’s a terrible ruling. Forget how you feel about abortion one way or the other. The ruling itself is awful. Every legal scholar knows that. So the appropriate thing in our democracy, in a republic, is to have the people in the several states, in those 50 laboratories of democracy, allow them to chart their own path. Because the truth of the matter is that no matter what a state does, whether for abortion or against abortion, that has nothing to do with the operations of the United States Constitution and of the federal government. What the Democrats have always wanted is their agenda cemented either by the court or by the bureaucracy. And as long as that happens, everything is okay. If there’s any opposition to the agenda, and that’s why it is bigger than just Roe, any opposition to the agenda, then what happens is that’s controversial. That’s a threat to democracy.”
Rep. Donalds also reacts to “The View” co-host Sunny Hostin claiming a Black Republican is an ‘oxymoron’. To hear what else he had to say, listen to the podcast!
